Subject: A Contemporary Devotional
On Union with God is easy to read; a brief work with short chapters that could serve for devotionals. Albertus Magnus says to consider the resurrected, whose, true to medieval thought, bodies and souls are separated. So the Believer should separate from the body, from the senses, to concentrate on God. Images, though they can inspire, are distractions.

For contemporary debate Albertus writes that Believers should be humble, but by hating the self. To consider others above oneself, “Learn utterly to despise thyself, to annihilate thyself and to appear daily more contemptible in the eyes of others,” 97.

A controversial statement is Albertus’ that “all is possible with God, that what He wills must infallibly happen, and what He wills not cannot come to pass...” 107. Again, “...by Whose permission all evil of whatever kind happens, and ever for some good end,” 109.
